I have photos from new shoots coming in and I'd really appreciate some advice on what photos in my current port are my weakest and really could stand to be removed to make room for new (and hopefully better) photos.

All IMO, of course.

Blurry up-the-nose shot with only a weak peek at cleavage. Delete ASAP.

While this may be of benefit to the photographer's portfolio (I doubt it), this blown-out, mostly concealed shot of you is unflattering and not beneficial. Delete ASAP.

While this is a semi-flattering view of your face, the rest of you is all bunched-up and hidden. Replace ASAP.

These are unflattering and not suitable for a model's portfolio:

...and this needs to go immediately:

Yikes! How did I miss that one? It was late and I was tired from an evening shoot.

That image is a perspective disaster. As Dean said of this in another thread, that right arm looks like a leg. A busted, deformed leg.

Not your fault, but you are on the hook to delete it.

Woo, didn't realize they were so bad, particularly the arm one. Hooray for learning:) I took those down, thanks for the advice!
